Today went rather well at the office. No txrad at the office means more work for the rest of us, but heavy work is better than none at all. Plus it was nice to get home to find txrad cleaning the house.
And after a couple of meetings today it seems far more likely that my position is now safe for awhile longer, and quite possibly at least until the end of January. So, I'm feeling a little more relaxed than I have felt for weeks.
